UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you. For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments. UNICEF has over 12,000 staff in more than 145 countries.
UNICEF plays a leadership role in World Immunization Week (WIW) which is celebrated in the last week of April every year and aims to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against diseases. WIW demonstrates the value of vaccines, the need to build on immunization progress while addressing gaps, including through increased investment, how routine immunization is the foundation for strong, resilient health systems and universal health coverage.
UNICEF is regarded by its partners as a leader on the social, psychological and behavioral dimensions of vaccine hesitancy, and in the establishment and stewardship of the inter-agency Immunization Demand Hub (DH). The objectives of the Demand Hub are to harmonize, coordinate, and communicate with partners on vaccine demand and uptake at global, regional and country levels. The Demand Hub has been recognized as a success and has raised the profile and visibility of UNICEF in immunization.
Immunization/C4D plays a very important technical and advisory role of providing content, developing and reviewing all media products, accuracy checking and providing rapid technical guidance to Department of Communications and Office of Executive Director.
